Oh yes! For those of you who enjoy reading with your ears, my 2011 début, Snowbound, will be coming out as an audio book at some point in the – hopefully – not too distant future. It will have a British narrator and it’s definitely going to happen, but otherwise, I can’t tell you too much else right now. I have no idea whether said narrator will attempt a Peak Districty-area-type accent, but I have asked that “Kinder Scout” rhyme with “tinder” and not “minder”!
I’ve always wondered why my books were never deemed saleable by Audible – did they not know what a “butty” was? Did they balk at trying to pronounce “Pillock”? Thankfully, Bold Strokes have no such qualms and are branching out into producing their own audio versions of stuff they reckon might sell. So huzzah for brave publishing companies!
More on this when I find owt out.
